HBO’s half-hour comedy series Crashing continues season three with four new episodes airing in February 2019. The eight episode third season kicked off on January 20th and airs on Sundays at 10pm ET/PT. The finale is set for March 10th.

The third season of the comedy created by series star Pete Holmes features Lauren Lapkus (Animals) as Pete’s ex-wife, Jessica; George Basil (Wrecked) as Leif, Jessica’s former lover; Jamie Lee (Girl Code) as fellow comic and former love interest Ali Reissen; Zach Cherry (You) as Pete’s manager, “Chicken Wing”; Dov Davidoff (Shades of Blue) as Jason; Jermaine Fowler (Superior Donuts) as Russell; and Aparna Nancherla (BoJack Horseman) as Anaya.

The Crashing Plot, Courtesy of HBO:

Fresh off of his two-month college comedy tour, Pete returns to New York City with newfound confidence in his comedic abilities. While growing more assured, he continues to struggle over what he really wants out of comedy and how to find a happy balance between his old, faith-based self and the new, more ambitious comic he’s becoming.

Crashing‘s third season finds Pete reinvigorated – and no longer crashing on people’s couches – as he reenters the NYC stand-up comedy world following his college tour. But even though he’s improved, that doesn’t mean he’s at the head of the pack. While continuing to orbit around fellow comic and ex-girlfriend Ali, he connects with a new woman, Kat, who has a unique perspective on the comedy world and isn’t trying to make it big by telling jokes. As Pete edges closer to success one stand-up set at a time, he continues to navigate his faith, dating and the ever-changing comedy scene.
